Giorgio Armani Going Fur Free


Giorgio Armani Tom Cruise Matthew Mcconaughey

The Italian fashion icon has been working with Fur Free Alliance, an organisation which encompasses more than 40 animal protection agencies fighting against the fur trade, and has announced he will cease to use hides as of later this year (16). The fur ban will be extended to all the brands under his empire, including Giorgio Armani, Armani Prive, and Emporio Armani.

"I am pleased to announce that the Armani Group has made a firm commitment to abolish the use of animal fur in its collections," a statement from Armani reads. "Technological progress made over the years allows us to have valid alternatives at our disposition that render the use of cruel practices unnecessary as regards animals.

"Pursuing the positive process undertaken long ago, my company is now taking a major step ahead, reflecting our attention to the critical issues of protecting and caring for the environment and animals."

Giorgio Armani: ‘I’D Love To Watch My First Fashion Show’


Giorgio Armani

The 81-year-old fashion legend formed his company Armani in 1975 and is one of the most successful designers ever to have graced the industry. While reflecting on a long and successful career, Giorgio reveals he would love to have been a spectator as his earliest creations hit the catwalk.

“My own first fashion show (in 1974) sitting in the audience rather than backstage, because that’s when it all began,” he replied during an interview with Britain's Elle magazine when asked which fashion show he wishes he had seen.

Giorgio takes his work very seriously and despite carving out a reputation for producing impeccably clean tailored lines, he doesn’t take success for granted. The designer pays great attention to detail, admitting his friends would probably describe him as “fussy” and “meticulous”. However, he also prides himself on being a true friend and lots of fun to be around.
